You Knew Me When
January 5 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Outfitted with an array of instruments, You Knew Me When is a husband and wife indie folk-rock pairing with a full band sound. Based in Ouray, CO, by way of Nashville, TN, the duo have toured full-time since June of 2012 throughout North America, sharing their collective sound. Now touring in support of their third studio album “Into the Looking Glass”, You Knew Me When continue to create and serve up an array of craft brewed compositions coast to coast.
The Music of You Knew Me When parades between a fusion of progressive indie-rock and folk compositions all infused with a myriad of pulsing and stirring beats. WRNC Radio stated, ““There is such a natural talent to You Know Me When and for the first time in quite awhile it may be a sound that is truly unique, or at least different in these musical times.” While blending their vocals, Karisa, who previously served as a Nashville public school music teacher, provides the piano, ukulele, glockenspiel, and percussion, as Cie, who spent several years as the Global Events Production Manager for Gibson Guitar, supplies the guitar and other rhythmic nuances. The cumulative result is a musical style that blends a singer-songwriter soul with a rock n’ roll mentality.
The foundations of You Knew Me When are rooted in Nashville, Tennessee, and while both Cie and Karisa originally went to Nashville to pursue various music endeavors, it took the husband and wife nearly a decade to create music together as a united pair. In their early years as a couple Cie could predominantly be found in within the hard-rock scene, while Karisa could be found more often in vocal seminars and music education workshops, and it wasn’t until mid 2009 when the two began writing music together. It was from that point on that the two began melding their life partnership into the musical partnership known as You Knew Me When.
The duo’s latest album “Into the Looking Glass” showcases the musical progression of You Knew Me When and the melding of both Karisa and Cie’s musical styles. At times upbeat and folksy, at times reflective and introspective, the album is a reflection of mile-markers and moments derived from giving up everything and finding new paths together. Physical and digital copies of “Into the Looking Glass” are available at www.youknewmewhen.com. The album is also available on iTunes, Amazon, and other online retailers.
